Mission of Mercy, Labour of Love…

Here I am in Napanee Ontario, the birthplace of Avril Lavigne. But my mission here is to visit my dear Da and hero in hospital. Stanley’s been in for five weeks already. I’m happy to say it looks like he’ll be going home soon, and we’ve had some great day passes together, noodling around and looking at stuff. Yesterday we scored big by coming upon a shipyard beside the road, near the Mill Bay ferry. Dad is very much a man of the sea, always had boats. When he saw the beauties there he said, “I may have to pick one of these up!” He was in great spirits yesterday, most heartwarming.IMG_1494
